The Nautilus confirms reopening
Luxury property The Nautilus Maldives is set to reopen on September 1 after being forced to close earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The hotel, the only Relais & Chateaux member in the Maldives, said it had taken the opportunity of enforced closure to refurbish its facilities and experiences.
Product enhancements include new menus in all three of the resort’s restaurants; an expansion of the island’s alfresco grill, Ocaso; a new air-conditioned space for yoga and fitness; and a new multi-sport court for guests to enjoy games.
The hotel also completed a beach and lagoon nourishment project during its hiatus to replenish and protect the shoreline and house reefs.
Outdoor ladders in all Ocean Houses and Residences have now been replaced with artisanal driftwood staircases.
A statement from The Nautilus added that the hotel's already thorough cleaning and hygiene protocols had been updated in line with public health guidelines issued by the WHO and local government authorities.
Located in the Unesco Biosphere of Baa Atoll, The Nautilus is one of the smallest islands in the Maldives, with just 26 houses and residences.
Exclusive island buyout packages are available for guests travelling with extended family, friends or in a group from August 1.
